Frequently Asked Questions...

  • Is it guaranteed?

Yes, 100%. I will find you someone who I think will be a good pen pal based on your responses to the questionnaire. I will also check in with you after a month or two to see how it's going. If they didn't respond or you haven't been able to get in touch, I will find you someone else! I am always here to help you on your journey, answer any questions, and resolve any concerns.

  • Is it real, handwritten letters or is it for an email pen pal?

No, this is the real deal! Once you are matched up with someone from another corner of the world, I will help you exchange addresses and write each other longhand letters.

  • I'm afraid I won't write back quick enough. What if I'm not a good pen pal?
Relax! Reach out to me if you have any worries, I love to talk to my customers and pen pals. But right now, you can start building a writing habit by choosing one night a week to write for 20 minutes, and by the time you have a pen pal, you'll already be a little more conditioned for it. Writing is therapeutic and can help you focus on the things that are important to you. Buy a journal to write in once a week while you're waiting for your pen pal's letter, and check the SENTimental blog for other helpful tips!
